A live-action/CG Bugs Bunny film? From the writer of Elf? It's true...

08.13.2010
First SPACE JAM, then LOONEY TUNES: BACK IN ACTION... and now? BUGS BUNNY, what Deadline calls "a live action/CG feature film designed to revive one of [WB's] most iconic intellectual properties."

Scribe David Berenbaum (THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES, ELF) has been assigned to write the new film for Warner Bros. No story details are yet available.

Looney Tunes has been in the midst of a revitalization of late. A series of 3D shorts featuring Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner will be playing in front of WB family films this year (one already played in front of CATS & DOGS: THE REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE... yeah, I know) with others still to come. And then Cartoon Network is launching a brand-new animated series featuring Bugs and Daffy Duck.

Will these be any good, though? Has anyone here seen the first of the 3D shorts? If you have, let us know what you thought in our Strike Backs below!

After Space Jam and that Brendan Fraser movie, I'm done with Bugs for a while. Let him die. I adore the character so much, but... seriously he's not funny anymore.

Wait, so this film will only have Bugs and no other Looney Tunes? I know BB is the most popular, but I'd like some more love given to Taz, Marvin the Martian, etc.

Woah, the writer of 'Elf' got work after writing 'Elf'?!

I want the zombie of Mel Blanc to rise up from its grave and wage a one-corpse war on Hollywood.

And I'm all for the resurrection of Looney Tunes. But the "CGI" worries me.

Are you worried about it being something in the same vein as Yogi Bear? Because if so, I'm worried too.

Coyote Falls

Coyote Falls was actually pretty great. If anything it was so good it made Cats and Dogs that much worse ...
